Introduction & Best Practices
Furthermore, the DISPLAY system variable must be set in order to start the TREX admin tool. Details and a guide to installing the tool can be found here: instguides → SAP NetWeaver → Released 04 → Installation → Cross-NW → Installation Guide Search and Classification TREX.
If we look at the question of standardisation, this concerns not only the administrative side of IT products, but also the standardisation and simplification of IT products offered by the SAP basis. For this purpose, tools such as ITIL for standardised tasks and the development of IT product and IT service catalogues have already established themselves to the greatest extent possible. These clearly describe the IT services provided. In addition to the definition of the service to be provided, the clear description shall include the identification of disclaimers and conditions that must exist. Also part of the service description is a price that can be composed of fixed and variable parts. This simplification and bundling of the product portfolios should also reduce the administrative burden when ordering, activating, changing, terminating and, of course, invoicing. The description of the IT services and the associated development of an IT product catalogue is the basis for standardisation, whether the recipient is an external or internal customer (e.g. a business unit). One difficulty is the definition of IT products, i.e. the pooling of IT services and resources. An orientation towards the idea of cloud computing can help. The characteristics of cloud computing are the provision of standardised services in terms of performance and type of performance, results-orientated services, provision of performance to a wide range of service customers, scalability, transaction-based billing and high risk of IT service failure.
Indirect use of SAP
The CodeProfiler prevents poor-quality code or programs with security vulnerabilities from entering a productive SAP system landscape in the first place. It is therefore important to use the CodeProfiler throughout the entire lifecycle of a software. Already during programming, the CodeProfiler helps the developer to identify and correct errors and vulnerabilities in the SAP landscape. The CodeProfiler automatically ensures that only "clean" code is transported to the next level (development system -> test system -> quality assurance system -> production system). The CodeProfiler can also be used for regular review cycles.
In addition to internal security requirements, national and international guidelines sometimes require all audit and security-related user actions to be recorded. With the Security Audit Log (SAL) you have the possibility to log all changes, e.g. for users, user master records, but also roles and groups.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Only then can we consider automation, outtasking, cloud, and outsourcing.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
The data is stored unencrypted in RAM.
